No, a taxi is your only option if you do not have access to a car. If you are coming from Dubbo, you can hire a car.
Can I take photos in the Caves?
Yes we certainly encourage you to take photos with your phone or camera to remember your experience at Wellington Caves. Please note however that tripods and monopods are not permitted.
Do the tours still run in wet weather?
Absolutely, the entrance to all three caves is just a short walk from the Visitor Experience Centre so make sure you bring an umbrella or raincoat for the initial walk but then you will be nice and dry inside the cave. You may even be lucky enough to see some of that rainwater filtering through the limestone creating crystal!
Can you buy food onsite?
Yes, we have a small café on site selling a range of quick and easy treats including pies, sausage rolls, sandwiches, cakes and slices. The café proudly aims to showcase local produce and support the region, so make sure you grab a coffee and something tasty after your tour.
